    I think the general INTP reaction varies based on their tolerance of Fi.

    I think INFPs are very sweet, very considerate, very passionate, and they inspire me to care about others and see the best in people. Sometimes they can even be very encouraging to me personally, even if they can't find answers to my questions.

    My frustrations mostly revolve around the (1) making arbitrary values into "truth" [I usually like their values but still see them as arbitrary rather than "truth" sometimes, so their reasoning does not benefit me in my search for truth] and (2) not being "hard" enough in a conversation, always pulling back or being afraid of offending someone, which waters down their valuable insights and makes them less effectual.

    And most of them are so "nice" they sometimes make me feel positively beastly. Grrrrr.....

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I enjoy the company of the INFP that I know. Nice to have another introvert around, for one. She's kind, a bit more social than I am, and makes beautiful clothing.

    Also, she tends to get fed up with typical adolescent behavior.

    Their disorganization makes me crazy...because I need someone to help me with mine...not compound it. The infp ACCEPTS their (and my) lack of organization...at least I fight it.

    Also, I find the infp kind of judgemental...kind of offended at other types for being who they are...like we are all supposed to evolve into infp's...lol...they are also proud of their lack of materialism...hmmm...could be a lack of motivation, competence, focus, and ability to earn...if viewed another way.

    Well...you asked...

    You can also kind of say that the inverse is true for INTPs, couldn't you, Patricia? =D
    Ti = 19 [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Te = 16[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Ne = 16[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Fi = 15 [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Si = 12 [][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Ni = 12 [][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Se = 11[][][][][][][][][][][]
    Fe = 0
